I am 20 weeks and just started seeing my blood pressure drop. I fainted while teaching my fourth grade class and my students were completely horrified! Luckily one of them went and got the nurse. I ended up in the emergency room and fainted there again. They told me that all my fluid and glucose levels were looking great and it was just because of low blood pressure. The doctor said that naturally your blood pressure goes back up at 28 weeks. My husband won't let me drive now because the doctors told me there is no way of predicting when it will happen again and he is too afraid that I will do it in the car.

Didn't know the achy arms thing is from my low blood pressure.. its usually around 90/50... hmm. Al the other symptoms doc dismisses as not drinking enough water. But this nails it!

Hey Snooks....didn't even know this forum existed! Hi to everyone else......I have been feeling super dizzy and nauseated. Last Thursday I ended up in the hospital bcuz of low bp. I have been moniterint it at home, and it's been better, but usually, it's somewhere around 95/51. I guess from what you gals say, there is really nothing we can do about it? Drink lots of water (I do) and eat some salt (I get lots!) ?!! My doc really didn't have anything else either except to lay down and rest when I feel bad.

My BP was pretty low the other day and I almost fainted. Luckily, I was at the doctor's office, so I was in good hands. My arms were achy all day too. Today, I've had the achy arms thing again, so I lay down on my side for a long while and am drinking lots of water to get the blood volume up. Hope it helps.

I've had low BP a couple times, but this afternoon I was feeling off - extra tired, lightheaded, nausea - so I checked my BP periodically throughout the afternoon ... ranged from 89/49 - 94/54. Never had it this low before.

I am experiencing very low blood pressure at times - 80/55 and I was told just to take liquids and cup of tea as no mediation are advisable for pregnant women. Does anyone experience the same? I hope it goes away at least in the second trimester...

For the first time in my life (& this is my second pregnancy) I have low blood pressure. At my last antenatal visit they checked it twice & it was low; today (a week later) I've got a headache, am feeling very light-headed and nauseous. What exactly can I do to rectify my blood pressure? Is it true that increasing your salt intake helps?

Hi everyone, I'm brand new to this site, but I am so glad I found it! I have had low blood pressure since I was a kid with the dizzy spells upon standing and rapid heart palpitations too. Docs always dismissed it and told me to stand more slowly. I have two children already, and with their pregnancies I didn't notice an increase in my low bp. I'm pregnant with my third child now, and things have gotten very bad. I passed out when I was around 7 weeks pregnant after standing to answer the phone. The room frequently goes black and I get ringing in my ears upon standing. My bp's are normally around 100/something, but lately they keep going down and down. The other day it was 80/40. They've taken them sitting and it may be like 90/something and then I stand and it drops to like 70/40 or something, and my pulse will shoot up to like 136. The doc said my heartrate is increasing to compensate for the decrease in pressure. They have me wearing the compression hose, eating salty stuff, drinking gatorade, and rising slowly, but that's it. I'm only 5'3'' and 104 lbs. so I know it's lower in general, but this is getting crazy! I'm only 13 weeks along, and I don't know how much longer I can take this! My OB said it would get better around 19 weeks, but from on here it seems like it could be a lot longer. Does anyone know if this is dangerous for the baby?
